I was named Neil in the UK 1969.Always thought it quite suited me & like that its not too common. My own mother used to sometimes misspell it, Niel instead of Neil.Much to the dI'may of a teacher one time whist reading a sick note. I have also very often been refered to as Ian.

"Neal"s are inferior to us. They can have their fake spelling of our name for all I care.

It's a nice strong masculine name, that is coming back in fashion like many other old names.

My name is Neil. It's a pretty decent name. Unusual enough so I am usually the only Neil in a group. I was definitely the only Neil through school and college.

People often mispell it, using the "Neal" spelling

i've never liked it and thought it wasn't very masculine. Too much like squeal. For some reason It's common for people named Neil to get called Ian by mistake. lol
